Sorry Ally! Give me a minute... those questions were asked in the midst me answering the previous batch. I will get to it now!
This is Stanley Park.
There is lots to do here. First, you can just walk around the Sea Wall. It is exactly what it sounds like. A giant wall built around the perimeter of the park, which borders the sea. Or you bike, job or rollerblade. No skateboarding though. It is a beautiful walk. Inside the park there is lots of native artwork and totem poles as well as great places to have picknics and relax. Alternatively, you could go to the Aquarium within the park. That is always fun. I highly suggest spending a day, or at least part of one, here if you visiting.
Here are a couple pictures of my fiancee and I at Stanely Park relatively recently, just before the haircut and shave.
Here is us in front of the totem poles.
Here is us acting gangster in front of the Stanley Park Yact Club.

Just a picture.
Here is us.
As for Granville Street, is a just a street full of goodness. It is a street full of many different stores, food- fast and restaurant, venues and clubs. If you want to shop and see the city, go to Granville Street. Also, wonder around the surrounding area, especially Robson.
This was a pretty epic post full of lots of information and picture. So this answer gets its own post.
When you come to Vancouver Valerie, make sure you say hi! (Did I spell your name right?)
they seem to be popular. i know a couple people who have them. mostly to streatch though, it basically spins in their ear. no posts.
If you could go back in time and live during any era for a year, what year would you visit and where would you go?
See you this weekend love. <3
Funny story! So, I sitting outside my tent at Coachella 07, and I am pretty sure it was Saturday. There are so guys from Calgary camping in the row across from us, and they are a loud bunch. One of the guy asks another a question (I forget what it was) but the reply was "Ha! Kick rocks, nerd!" My friends and I all burst out laughing upon hearing this. The combination of never hearing this used before, mixed with the way he said it was just too funny. It has turned into a sort of inside joke.
I have no idea. I am getting a major in political science and minor in media communications and I don't know exactly what I want to do with them. All I know is that I don't want to be a politician.
I revive fairies like no other. One time, this fairy was dying and I looked at it and I was like "Bitch, please" and it lived. True story.
Wait... does Desmond Dekker count as 1st or 2nd wave? If he is first wave, it makes the decision a little harder. But either way, 2nd wave.
First, there was a girl I was dating for a month or so, and then got dumped. This was just under a year before I met Becky. We were friends before hand, but I liked her a lot but was too shy to ask. I then heard from a friend that she liked me, so I soon after asked her out. After about a month of seeing each other, she broke up with me. She said she would rather be friends. And we did remain friends for quite a while afterward, but until I met Becky, I really wished we would have stayed together. I guess she is my "one that got away," but I don't really think about it anymore, it was for the better.
Another one, which is more of a funny story, was that in grade 8 there was this girl that I really liked, but she had no interest in me. I actually liked her all the way through up until grade 10. Until one day, I suddenly realized that she was a total bitch. From that point onward, I was repulsed by her. I know I was in grade 8, but I still wonder why I liked her so much for 2 years.
And there is a third... but its less of a "one that got away" and more of just an embarassing story. So I will leave it be.
Good fucking question. When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be paleontologist. I loved dinosaurs so goddamn much it was rediculous. I actually still do have a weird fascination with dinosaurs. I knew way more about them when I was a kid though. Becky asked me this the other day actually... Im trying to remember what I said. I always thought being Velociraptor would be cool, but it wouldn't suit my personality much. A Brachiosaurus would be much more like me, and it would be tall like me... but I wouldn't want to be a Brachiosaurus. So, I think I would be a Brachioraptor. If this is not a satisfactory answer, let me go watch Jurrasic Pakr and I will get back to you.
Someone, please create a Brachioraptor for me.
That is all for now folks! Keep the questions comming!
dekker got his start in the early 60s, so i would argue he is an original first wave rude boy. plus, king of ska, israelites & get up edina, basically his famous tracks are all first wave. i totally wish i could have seen him before he passed, RIP DEKKER!!!
Not saying this to make you jealous or anything, but I'm taking a class on the natural history of dinosaurs this quarter. A class on dinosaurs that you get credit for. It's pretty sweet.
As a bass player, I want to know about you, a fellow bassist; who are your bass heroes? Or, if that term doesn't really work, what other musicians do you try and work off of when you're in the creative spirit?
You see a cat up for adoption. The cat is missing an eye and most of its fur. Otherwise, it is a healthy feline. Would the cat's physical appearance make you more or less likely to adopt it?
Oh, and favorite type of pancakes, please.
My name is Becca. Hi.

If you could play anyone's bass in the history of music, whose would you choose?
I haver played a Rickenbacker before, and it is an incredible sounding bass. Playing Cliff Burtons would be incredible.
Either that, or...
Sorry I couldn't answer any questions last night, long night of work. Keep em comming though! I will get to the next bunch (and greg's) later tonight.
Excuse me if this has been asked, but I am very curious:
Do you have ANY hesitations about planning on getting married so young? I mean, I know what it feels like and I recognize the impulse, but I guess "why now" is really my question...
I only ask because my boyfriend's best friend is around our age too and is also getting married. We think he's psychotic for doing so. I like to hear the logic around it and I don't mean it in a rude way.
Please give us a song you would like to hear for each of the following situations:
1. You just found out your band is opening for FNM.
2. Your first dance at your wedding reception.
3. Rainy morning with nothing to do all day.
if you could only listen to music from one continuous five-year period, where in the timeline of music history would your five years be?
If you had to live somewhere in the US, where would it be and WHY?
I guess I should have made that more than one paragraph, but I can't find a proper place to break it.
EDIT: Just so everyone knows, this was not meant to sound hostile and I did not take offence to this question. I just strongly believe in this decision, so I used strong language to convey this. No offence though. Good question.
1. Queen - We Are The Champions
2. The Aggrolites - Lets Pack Our Bags (this has already been discussed between the lady and I.)
3. Radiohead - Paranoid Android.
Decision: 1989-1994. I sometimes think I was actually supposed to be a teenager in the early 1990's. Instead, I was 2. Oh well.
Decision: New York. Considering I have never been there, this seems like an odd choice to make, but the city has such history and such, I don't know, promise (if that is the right word) that I feel if I had to live somewhere, New York would be the city to choose.
Sorry for the delay guys! I got called into work tonight. I need the money though. Couldn't skip it to answer questions on the internet. I am enjoying this though. I really am. So keep em comming! And Greg, I will get to your question tomorrow. I promise! (Unless I get called into work again...) Lets hear some more!
Old reliable: What is the worst physical pain you have ever experienced? Story please.
Do you think a good music video makes you like a song more?
How it happened? I invited some friends over to go skateboarding, so we are leaving my house and skating down the hill. Just my luck, I hit a rock and go flying. I land elbow first. I get up move over to a patch of grass and lay down. My friends ask if I need to go to the hospital, I say no and try to get up. My forearm moved but everything below my elbow didn't. At that point I knew something was wrong. I then went to the hospital and from then until the surgery, I believe it was just over a day after it happened, I was in a lot of pain. Luckily, I was an copious amount of morphine. I then had to stay in the hospital or about 5 days after. Those 5 days were hell. I then went home, and stayed in doors for about 2 weeks or so. After this, I had months of painful physiotherapy to go through. As of today, I still don't have full movement of my left arm and I never will. Its almost full movement, but not quite. Anyways yeah, thats the story. It sucked at the time, but as a result I have two rad scars and a story to tell.
I own zero basses. I am saving up for one right now though. I am most likely going to get a Fender Jaguar bass. Or maybe a precision, but I am leaving towards the Jaguar.
Josh, read any good books recently?
And what is your favorite non-music related hobby?
It's been a good bit since i've been in this wonderful thread that I have created. Someone refresh me on the new rules or are they still the same?
Josh, where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Have you and Becky discussed children names at all?
Do you read books or movies? What was the last book or movie that had an impact on how you look at life or how you live it?
